    UK's UFC event set for September 29th at Nottingham Arena

    Post  Sheldan on Mon May 21, 2012 1:21 pm

    The UFC’s next appearance on British soil will take place September 29 in Nottingham.

    Numerous sources have confirmed the booking to Fighters Only and the organisation is currently attending to the logistics of bringing the show to Nottingham.

    That includes booking hotel rooms for its fighters, support staff and backroom employees - one UFC event works out around 600 hotel nights, according to one source.

    No names are confirmed for the card as yet but there have been several fighters pencilled in for the September 29 date, which takes place at the 10,000 capacity Capital FM Arena.

    Among them are Jorgen Kruth and Cyril Diabate, who were supposed to have thrown down at the recent UFC Sweden event. The meeting was scotched when Kruth suffered an injury in training.

    Numerous British fighters can also be expected to appear. Look out for the likes John Maguire and Paul Taylor to be offered spots on the card.

    The staging of the event in Nottingham does make for an interesting possibly - Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley is a Nottingham man and a huge ticket seller; if there was ever a time for him to inveigle his way back into the UFC, September 29 would be the one.

    Let's hope that we get a good card!

    Hopefully It will be If Hardy wins against Bang this weekend he will be a shoe in I'd imagine and with Pearson and Sotiropoulos allegedly up for TUF UK vs Oz surely that would make perfect sense to be the headliner.

    UFC said last month that it wouldn't be Liverpool this year, maybe next year.

    Well we have confirmation! Sheldan was correct, Nottingham 29th September. Smile Im definately going this time, anyone else going?

    Rumours of Dan Hardy, Paul Sass, and Andy Ogle being on the card. Bet Hardy headlines.

    Im definitely going this time, i missed the last one but went to 120 in the O2 in October 2010...

    Yeah Dana hinted at Hardy fighting on that card and told Ogle that he could feature on it... We wont get any big stars as usual though, Brits and other European fighters... sigh
